Ebook – Hitting the Mark with High Potentials
High potentials consistently and significantly outperform their peer groups in a variety of settings and circumstances. While achieving superior levels of performance, they exhibit behaviors that reflect their companies’ culture and values in an exemplary manner. You may have an abundance of high-potential employees working for you. Learn how to identify them, and actualize their potential to create a high-performance workforce.
Sub-Par Performance Overview
Some employees may have low potential, but only in their current position. This may be because they were put in a job that wasn’t a good fit for them. Of course, there are also those who have low potential because they lack motivation or weren’t right for the company from the beginning. These employees probably shouldn’t have been hired in the first place.
Whatever the cause of the employee’s low potential, it’s important to get to the root of the problem or your business will suffer.
How Low Potential Affects Your Business
An employee who isn’t living up to their potential drags down their entire department—which in turn drags down the business. Low-performing employees negatively impact your productively and can also be harmful to the morale of their team.
